Interior designer Jonathan Butler-Knutson’s extensive range of experience across multiple sector types affords him an acute understanding of best practices, trends, and historical precedence for a variety of spatial types, enabling him to meld concepts to create live/play/work environments within one facility. Specializing in large government and corporate campuses, to include government centers, public works buildings, and tactical training facilities, he applies an approach that focuses on the interplay between these environments and other design sectors to create a dynamic workplace environment. With each of his designs, he prioritizes the creation of flexible, timeless environments that allow end users to reinvent their spaces as needs and workstyles change while incurring limited cost and downtime.
As a thought leader in interior renovation design, Jonathan has published strategies for designing across a range of budgets and differing levels of refinishing and reuse. He has authored a continuing education course on the process for furniture procurement utilizing both the traditional bidding process as well as the utilization of pre-negotiated government contracts, while characterizing environmental considerations, flexible/active workstyles, and multiple stakeholder coordination.
An active proponent of industry engagement and leadership, Jonathan serves as the Vice President of Membership for the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the International Interior Design Association, in which he is responsible for membership and strategic engagement. A native of central Minnesota, he currently resides in Washington, DC, and is an avid cook, runner, and nature aficionado.
